Very solid show and great sound quality too.
Subject: Criminally Underrated Show!
Set one starts of strong with a lengthy, energetic Stranger. Jerry slows things down a bit with Peggy-O but his playing is very enthusiastic. C.C. Rider is next and it is a blazing hot rendition with amazing solos. Bird Song is another highlight. The vocals are surprisingly good and the jam features some great group interplay and lofty soloing. Bucket and Big Railroad Blues close out this excellent, hot set.
The energy level is amped up even more for the second set. Samson is soaring with fiery leads from Garcia and strong vocals. Terrapin features an extended jam and flows into a tight energetic Truckin. This segues into a nice reading of Smokestack Lightning that leads into an extended pre Drums jam which is one of the high point of the night. The Stella Blue that comes out of Space is beautiful featuring soulful singing and playing from Jerry. One of the better late period versions of this song. Surprisingly, another Jerry tune, Goin' Down the Road, follows and this was is bursting with energy. Everyone seems into it and Jerry plays some blistering leads. Bobby closes out the show with two short but blazing rockers.

Subject: yet more awesome '85
Stranger, Peggy-O, CC Rider, and Bird Song all smoke!!! Bird Song's got a great jam too...
Samson>Terrapin>Truckin' is fantastic....HIGH energy for Truckin', then a little blues for a nice Smokestack...
Space melts into Stella Blue that leads into a rockin' GDTRFB
awesome show, lots of energy, great setlist, but it'll only get a 4 b/c I find the recording to be quite bassy...(obviously) this is not an Oade recording (A+), but it's a decent listen overall, if you can get over the BASS!!!
